Still Shining- May Series

Good Morning, Ponderbots!

May is here and we have a power packed month full of artists! I was blown away with the amount of participation for this series, and I am so excited! We even have two artists a day for some of the days!

As Covid-19 has brought the world to quarantines and lockdowns, causing the world to shift, there is some things that it cannot take away, our creative spirits. Our mediums may have to be altered, as well as our subject matters, but life prevails through art.

Our hearts go out to everyone fighting the illness and the ones in the frontlines. While they fight the sickness head on, the artists encourage and inspire, which keep up the spirit and validate the hardships. All of us taking the small part we have in this world to work together as a team.

This month is some of the work people have been doing while they’ve been in isolation, and I am in such awe of all the accomplishments despite the tribulations.

We are still here, we are still fighting, and we are still shining.

Ponder Away (An Online Open-Mic) – Call For Submissions

Hey there, Ponderbots,

Do you have artwork that you have been wanting to share, but maybe you aren’t sure if it’s good enough yet? Maybe you have a creation that you are super proud of, but you haven’t found the right venue to submit it to? Or maybe you are working on lots of art all the time and you submit to every opportunity you find?

Whatever your status, I want to see it, read it, hear it! Every bit of art is an inspiration that you are out there breathing and feeling just like the rest of us. Your stories give voice to those who cannot speak for themselves. Your music brings beauty to moments that otherwise would have been filled with emptiness. Your passion encourages others to dream for themselves. Whether you are just starting out or have been working on your craft for years, your art has value.

With that in mind, I am kicking off the new year by giving you an opportunity to share your ponders with me. This January, I am hosting an online open-mic!

What is an online open-mic? Good question! It is where you submit your art of any kind, music, poetry, drawings, paintings, etc. of any genre or topic. Your work will then be displayed on my blog: www.pondersavant.com during the month of January 2020.

So, send me your work, your passions, your ponders! The magic you’ve created is wanted here.
